Freedom is everything, resolve impossible
You prayed for rain, ignoring the flood
You took me with you to heaven and back again
Bleed to remember that everything ends

Blind and looking forward
I can see the shapes
But can't make out the faces
Still they come in close

Excuse this ugly shell, my
Gaping holes drip pride
A systematic shutdown
Of diminishing returns

Nothing gets
Easier gets
Nothing gets
Easier gets

I held you down, on the day of the lord
31 marks like the day I was born
I called you beautiful before I knew you
Watch me destroy it and set myself free

Still so dead and frozen, we all survive it
Restraints brought back for color
The most insulting guilt
Such sweet attractive layers
Let me remove them all

Nothing gets
Easier gets
Nothing gets
Easier gets

Bring me home
Let me down
Send me back
Collecting the pieces

The less I give, it's easier
The more we give, it's nothing

Nothing gets
Nothing gets
Nothing gets
Nothing gets

Nothing gets
Nothing gets
Nothing gets
Nothing gets

    General CommentI Think This Song Is About How Everyone Wants More Then They Have Or Need And How Shallow Everyone Is. "you prayed for rain ignoring the flood" And "the less I give its easier, the more we give, its nothing" Makes Me Think About How Everyone Wants More Then They Have And Any Time You Try To Help, It Never Works, And "such sweet attractive layers let me remove them all" Makes Me Think About How Shallow People Are. Also For Some Reason The Song Makes Me Think About Sex, But Thats Just About What All The AHC Songs Sound Like Theyre About To Me... Very Very Awesome Song Though, Im Sad No One Else Commented On It Yet, Its One Of The Best On The Album If You Ask Me.
